Directed by Seijun Suzuki. 92 minutes.
Not Rated. Japanese with subtitles.
When a mysterious stranger muscles into two rival yakuza gangs, Tokyo's underworld explodes with violence.
YOUTH OF THE BEAST was a breakthrough for director Seijun Suzuki, introducing the flamboyant colors, hallucinatory images, and striking compositions that would become his trademark.
Frequent Suzuki collaborator Jô Shishido radiates cool as a thug looking to play both sides to his own benefit.
